3 Characteristics

Eshilai's length is huge, structure is rigorous, range is wide, melody has both deep and intense characteristics. It is mainly sung at mass entertainment gatherings such as Odoruchi. Individual music can also be used for dance accompaniment. Ye Lai's short length, varied rhythm and lively tune are the main accompaniments for mass self-entertainment dances in festive occasions such as season at the age and life etiquette.

Esila and Yelai complement each other and complement each other, enriching the spiritual world of the people in circulation, cultivating their sentiments, becoming an important part of the social life of the Uzbeks, reflecting the cultural identity of the Uzbek nation, thus becoming one of the cultural symbols that distinguish the Uzbek nation from other nationalities. The research on the history of the development of Chinese music and dance, the history of the exchange of music and culture between the East and the West, and the social and historical situation of Uzbeks has great reference value. For various reasons, at present, Ashley and Yelai are on the verge of being lost and need to take measures to protect them.
